Default Need help with Surgery/Trauma

I am two months into my prep and I've finished one read of Kaplan and did questions in UWorld side by side. I noticed I'm scoring way to low on the surgery questions, specifically the trauma related ones. I'm using MTB 2 and 3 apart from Kaplan. Should I add another source, my average at the moment is 59% in surgery, that is really stressing me out.

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks for the help!

Also I'm also wondering why UWorld for CK doesn't have many biostats questions , it's been a while since I took Step 1 so I might need some practice with those. Any suggestions? I know UWorld has a separate Biostats Qbank, but I've read on the forums it's not quite worth it if you remember your basics, I know the concepts I just need some practice questions. Thanks
